History Design Tints has evolved from (Dial-A-Tint Window Films) a residential and car tinting company over 15 years ago by Mohammad and Wafaa Thompson. In the early years Mohammad and Wafaa worked with dedication to build their reputation and establish themselves as specialists in this area. In the early years, Design Tints focused on the supply and installation of window film that offered predominately functional applications.

Through sheer hard work and determination, Design Tints became known for its high-quality production and superior installation and over time they positioned their company as an industry innovator by their increasing capacity to install graphics on a variety of media.

Today, with Mohammad and Wafaa still as directors, Design Tints is still a family business, though it has grown significantly in size and production capacity since those early years.

It continues to be well respected for its fast turnaround of measures and quotes and its commendable levels of staff retention.

Design Tints also continues to innovate, through exploring and discovering approaches to handling new media and ways to print and apply window film to glass. While its services continue to be extremely functional, they now also provide greater scope for artistic and creative applications.

Design Tints is proud to offer our window film service to many of New Zealand’s leading companies and institutions. The company continues to stand by their commitment to provide professional service and high-quality products.
